Everyday Makeup Tutorial

If you're like me, my morning routine doesn't always involve makeup. But when it does, I want to look amazing! Younique sent me some fantastic products that I've been able to easily incorporate into my everyday makeup look. I can't wait to share my tips and these products with you!

I started with Younique's Moonstruck Addiction Shadow Palette 1. Because I have brown hair and blue eyes, I gravitated to the warm neutrals. Palette 2 is cooler with grays and silver while Palette 3 uses shades of pink and purple. You can use any of these to create your own look based on your favorite color combinations.

Once you've chosen your palette, it's time to work on your canvas. Applying makeup is a lot like creating art using highlights, shadows, and gradients. Follow the same rules as you would creating dimension in a painting. Use lighter colors on the parts of your face that are prominent — the brow bone, center of the nose, and chin.  Use darker colors to contour and create depth — the crease of your eye, under the cheekbones, and in the crease above your chin.

My final tip has to do with lips and cheeks. To get more bang for your buck, consider using Younique's Stiff Upper Lip Stain on your cheeks. Since I'm so pale, I used the color Shy, but if you're tanner, consider other colors. Just make sure you use it sparingly and blend like crazy into the apples of your cheeks. It creates a natural, flushed glow that lasts all day.
